Hog and Barrel Project

Hog and Barrel

It’s almost time for the PA Sale at DAZ and I managed to get a project ready to have included. This was totally inspired by my fascination with Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. So I wanted to pay homage in my own way to the inns found in Hobbiton and Bree.

So I came up with my own take on those locations and called this little watering hole The Hog & Barrel. Now to say that this was put together just for this years PA Sale would be a bit far of the mark because in all reality this set has taken well over 3 years to make. Not that I’ve been slaving away on this every waking minute but rather I kept dipping in and out of this while maintaining the day job.

It comes in two parts both interior and exterior and it’s pretty detailed. It was certainly fun to put together and I loved every aspect of it from the modelling to the texturing and eventual rigging in DAZ Studio. I used a combination of 3DS Max and Zbrush for the modelling. UV’s were unwrapped in uvlayout. Texturing done primarily in Substance Painter with a little bit of Photoshop. Rendered with Iray in DAZ Studio.

I’m not sure what day these will be available during September. But I’ll make that known on social media.
